BRAD and GEORGE ATTEND SAVING THE BOOM PREMIERE
AND LAGUNA BEACH FIRST CITY TO OPPOSE PROPOSITION 8!
LAGUNA BEACH – It’s been quite a couple of weeks. Last Tuesday, the Laguna Invasion of LA took place with several dozen Lagunans, who stared in the movie, coming up to Hollywood to see the World Premiere of John Keitel’s Saving the Boom documentary at the Outfest Film Festival. And there were two surprise guests at the Premiere, Brad (Pitt) and George (Clooney) who arrived on the red carpet and posed for photos with Premiere guests. Brad had flown in from Nice, where just days earlier Angelina had given birth to their twins. And George flew in from the set of his new fall comedy for HBO “The Fall of Bob.” He had gained 40 lbs for his new role and looked a little different.
The stars loved John’s movie and who knows; maybe they will buy the Coast Inn and SAVE the BOOM!!! once and for all. Brad, John, Fred and George at the Director’s Guild Theater last week for the World Premier of John Keitel’s Saving the Boom Documentary
